Interesting Reading

First, read this and gather some useful intel.

Well, folks, looks like they are at least thinking about it.

"Full Spectrum Operations" sounds a hell of a lot better than "Martial Law" eh?

Of course, they ignore the most dangerous possibility, and the one upon which FREEFOR has hung it's collective chances the most-that large elements of the US Military may support an insurgency with intelligence, equipment, and out-and-out defection, or even worse, they may start questioning their orders to kill the citizens-easier in a foreign nation, much harder on US soil.  Still, the fact that they are thinking about the situation means that there are professional soldiers who acknowledge the possibility of insurrection in our lifetime.

Just how hard are you training?  Good, now harder.

Still, as Oscar Wilde put it, there is only one thing worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.  I'll see you in Gitmo, patriots.

    Oh yeah, "deprecation" has two meanings these days. In the high-tech meaning, as in "deprecated software," I'd say the opposite is "introduction," or maybe even "alpha" to save context. In the more common meaning as you were using it, as in "self-deprecation," I'd say the opposite is "aggrandizement."

    Is it self-deprecation or self-aggrandizement if it's factual?

    Look at the bright side---we'll have plenty to talk about, though I'm sure we'd both prefer to do it in Gary or Kalamazoo.
